Rania Ropes a Rancher: A Historical Western Romance (Brides with Grit) (Volume 1)

A sweet, clean historical romance set in 1873. Rania Hamner and her family emigrated from Sweden fourteen years ago to work on a Texas ranch, working cattle and herding them up the Chisholm Trail. Something in her life on the trail caused her to doubt her worth, and her ability to trust a man enough to become his wife. Once the family buys a homestead in Kansas, she meets a rancher who begins to make her believe she can trust and fall in love after all. Rancher Jacob Wilerson noticed Rania last year when she rode drag behind a herd of longhorns—right down Main Street of Ellsworth, Kansas. He’s been waiting for her family to return this spring with another Texas herd to the booming cowtown, because he hopes to rope her into staying permanently on his ranch—the way she had already roped his heart. When Rania’s past attacks with new danger, she decides to fight for all she’s worth because she realizes she wants to be with Jacob forever. When Jacob realizes Rania is in danger, he rushes to save her, whether or not she still loves him, hoping to rope Rania—his heart—once more, as she has roped his.

  1. A must read I l just finished all six books in the Brides with Grit series. I loved them all. I would highly recommend these if you love historical western. I like how you are not left with a cliff hanger to see what happens to the characters.

  2. Hope on the prairie…. This is an easy read about immigrants from Sweden that settle in Texas and then move north to the prairie. Rania meets Jacob who runs his father’s ranch. Hilda, her twin sister, uses her horse racing money to buy the deed to some property. The brother, Dagmar, gets work at a local ranch. The rest of the family plan to join them on the prairie later in the year. I would like to have had a little more depth to the characters but it is an interesting storyline. I’ve already previewed the next two…
